Dental Implants

Introduction

Dental Implants are devices used to permanently anchor dental prostheses to the bone. Typically, they involve the surgical insertion of a titanium implant into the bone, to which a porcelain tooth is attached. Sometimes the implant will be the foundation for a more complex system of gold bars or ball joints which are used to hold a denture in place.

What does the surgery involve?

Dental Implant surgery can range from a relatively simple procedure that can be performed under local anaesthetic, through to relatively complex surgery requiring a general anaesthetic. Dr Hyam will discuss the dental implant surgery you require at the time of your consultation and tailor a plan to suit your needs.

What are the risks of surgery?

When you consult with Dr Hyam he will discuss the relative risks and benefits of any proposed procedures. Every procedure has risks and these risks are always balanced against your individual needs and treatment requirements.
